A surf spot that can be surfed from a few feet up to 15 or more. When it's small, Papôa is your typical fun reef breaks, with rights and lefts, often uncrowded due to the amazing wave offer available in Peniche. As it starts getting bigger it gets more dangerous. In the past few years it began being recognized as a big wave spot.
Surfers like Peter Mel, John John Florence and João Macedo surfed it on a big day, giving it some international reputation. Works best with east wind and West swell.
